Steve Mills mentioned Willy Hernangomez as a player that the Knicks will try to build around. Tim Hardaway Jr., Kristaps Porzingis and Frank Ntilikina were also on Mills' list of franchise building blocks, and he said that the team will stress player development next season. It sounds like there's a chance Hernangomez could open the 2017-18 season as New York's starting center, so he'll make for a highly intriguing late-round selection on draft day.

Willy Hernangomez was named to the All-Rookie First Team. Willy is joined by Malcolm Brogdon, Buddy Hield, Dario Saric and Joel Embiid, while Jamal Murray, Yogi Ferrell, Jaylen Brown, Brandon Ingram and Marquese Chriss were named to the All-Rookie Second Team. Saric, Brogdon and Embiid are the finalists for the Rookie of the Year Award which will be announced on Monday night. As for Willy, he should open the 2017-18 season as the starting center for the Knicks and is a potential breakout candidate.

Willy Hernangomez produced his second straight double-double during Sunday's loss to the Raptors, tallying 24 points, 11 boards, five dimes, one 3-pointer, three steals and two turnovers in 31 minutes. It’s lines like this that make Hernangomez a must-own player in all formats, and it’s worth pointing out that he gets an extremely fantasy-friendly matchup against the 76ers for his final game of the season on Wednesday. It'll be interesting to see what the Knicks do with Joakim Noah's horrendous contract this offseason, but it would make sense for them to part ways with Noah in order to install Hernangomez as their unquestioned starting center.

Willy Hernangomez scored 13 points with eight rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 31 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday. He made 5-of-15 from the field, so at least he was very busy. There's a good chance Hernangomez gets even more shots on Friday against the Grizzlies, so his fantasy owners should fire him up again. If there is a positive on the Knicks season, Hernangomez has to be one of them.

Willy Hernangomez scored 12 points with nine rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 23 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday. The Knicks should be sticking with Hernangomez in the starting lineup the rest of the way. Hernangomez has fared well in his last five, averaging 14.0 points, 9.2 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.8 steals. He should be owned in all leagues and could trend up even more.

Willy Hernangomez hit six of his nine field goal attempts to finish with 15 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal over 27 minutes in Monday's win against Detroit. Hernangomez was struggling with his shot in the middle of the month, but he has been efficient lately. The big Spaniard is hitting 62.9 percent (22-of-35) from the floor over the past three games while averaging 16.3 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocked shots per game. Hernangomez is a great play down the stretch as head coach Jeff Hornacek seems very pleased with his performance.

Willy Hernangomez is starting again on Monday vs. the Pistons. The Knicks will start Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee, Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Willy. The rookie center is coming off his best game of the season, as he racked up 24 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block vs. the Spurs on Saturday. He might not start every game depending on the matchups, but he's worth deploying in all standard leagues.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek praised Willy Hernangomez after he scored 24 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block vs. the Spurs on Saturday. "He’s getting better and better every game,’’ Hornacek said. "The experience against this team with LaMarcus [Aldridge], [Dewayne] Dedmon, Pau [Gasol], those are long, long guys. You see how smart a player he is. He didn’t try to jump over the guys and challenge them — he shot his little floaters over them.’’ Hornacek said he isn't ready to commit to Hernangomez as the starting center for the 2017-18 season, but with Joakim Noah suspended for the first 12 games of that campaign, the rookie has to be the heavy favorite. He should be owned in all standard leagues.
